Macracantha arcuata (long-horned orb-weaver or curved spiny spider)

Encased in a black plastic float frame with elasticity film which allows you to easily see both sides of your orb weaver. The plastic film allows you to better see the physical characteristics of your critter while keeping them safe. You can open the frame but it will probably damage your new insect friend.

The frame is approximately 3.75" x 3.75". 4" with base.

Female long-horned orb-weavers have tough, shell-like abdomens armed with three pairs of spines. The spectacular middle (median) spines project upward and outward, curving in toward each other along their length. They are up to three times as long (20-26 mm) as the abdomen is wide (8-9 mm). The front (anterior) and rear (posterior) spines are short, relatively inconspicuous, and roughly equal in length.[4][5]

The upper surface of the female abdomen ranges from yellow to red or even white or black and is marked with black sigilla. The ventral surface of the abdomen bears yellow or orange marks, and the median spines can show a bluish iridescence.

A great addition to any cabinet of curiosities or classroom educational tool!

The critter pictured is an example of what you will be receiving. No worries, they are all about the same and super lovely.
